Wide Wale Corduroy Infinity Scarf

This is a quick knit and easy for those who love knitting on circular needles. The fat ridges remind me of the wide wale corduroys I had as a teenager.  (in the days when we were not allowed to wear jeans to school, they were the "cool" option).  Enjoy!

Wide Wale Corduroy Infinity Scarf
